I didn't think I would be able to make this date, but it now appears I could. However, I believe you're full, so perhaps I could be added as a reserve?
If there is now a spot available, can I now be confirmed?

Hi Phil
Looks like there was a gap at 8 - over to you.

Excellent, I'll be pleased to join you. Could either bring a W58 (need to check condition) or am happy to join the adoption pool so that we have a wider range of years covered.

13 people and 14 ports.

Would like to withdraw the N78 and substitute with a Royal Oporto 58. This leaves a token for 78 and 88 with emphasis on the 48/58

Don't worry if you do not have an 8 - you can adopt.

• Duck paté.
• Gammon and everything, perhaps including Ian’s egg.

Would you like me to assemble the food order?

Julian - I think Tony would very much appreciate you assembling the food order. I would like no starter, special order bone in rib eye (medium rare) with a side of fried shallots, bone marrow gravy and triple cooked fat chips.

Draft of the food order.

How decorated or plain do you want the placemats?
